Fish Finders

Before the advent of things like marine fishfinders, we as fishermen depended on the clues that the world and water gave us to find the best place to go fishing.
We used to map it all out, lining up reefs and sunken logs and any number of other factors, including birds circling and diving..

While today we still use some of those clues to find a good place to fish, we also have the added benefit of marine electronics such as fishfinders to tell us what’s under the water, whats hiding under our boat and show us exactly where they are hiding.

Fish Finders come in a wide variety of models

The advent of these advances in underwater technology gives todays fisherman a bit of an advantage in that he or she has some added information about the environment that lies under the water and whats down there besides the archtypical sunken boot.
Taking a little time to learn a few things about fishfinders will help you to find the one that suits your purpose and meets your needs as well as what fits your budget.

What a fishfinder does, is to give you a peek into the underwater worlk, letting you put your effort and energy into fishing the waters that are most likely to give you a positive return.
It does this by receiving and sending high and low frequency sound waves out into the water by means of a transducer, which can detect the varying structures, types of surface, and fish.
There are some vast number of fish finders out there today, that offer various levels of power, details and sensitivities so that you have a wide choice in what you buy.

The color models are so much easier to use in my opinion
Some of the best known names in fishfinders are Garmin and Furuno, who give so many choices that nearly everyone, from the amateur to the professoinal fisherman will find something that will be the ideal for their purposes.
If you are interested in locating fish in a wider, larger area, then you will want to find a high frequency fish finder that will typically transmit a wider beam, which will make it more effective in a bigger area.(180kHz to 220kHz), whereas, the lower frequencies such as 30kHz to 60kHz, transmit a more narrow cone of sound that will penetrate more deeply but with less width in its scope.

Or, if what you need is water depth and a wider angle, fortunately you can purchse a dual frequency finder that will offer you both options in just one unit.

Once you’ve chosen the model that you want, and which wil best suit your needs and ability to fit it into your budget, be sure to read the manuals and to familiarize yourself with the equipment before you take it out, so that it will give you optimal performance and maximal use.
The more adept you are at using it, the better its going to work for you and the more you’re going to catch.
